    LOL Exactly. Hilarious. That book will be on Rapidshare or here within days or weeks of it reaching the hands of all the Elders.

    The instructions given for the handling of the Coercion and Control For Dummies 2.0 clearly indicate c-u-l-t.

    "We will leave it to each elder to decide what he will do with his 1991 Kingdom Ministry School textbook. If he decides to keep the book, he must make sure it is put in a secure place so that others do not have access to it. Otherwise, the book should be completely destroyed."

    Jeez - you would think they were discussing the secret plans for a nuclear bomb.

    And SO perfectly high-control JW - even when they "leave it to each elder to decide", they have to include childish detailed instructions on what to do after you decide.

    Dear brothers,

    Final arrangements are being made for the upcoming Kingdom Ministry School, and we are now pleased to provide you with some additional information and direction.

    A revised, softcover text book, entitled "Shepherd the Flock of God" - 1 Pet 5:2 has been prepared in connection with the school. In addition, lapel cards are being provided for elders and ministerial servants for use as identification upon entry at the school location and during the course. The appropriate number of text books will be shipped to the mailing address of the coordinator of the body of elders when the textbooks become available in the language of the congregation. The lapel cards will be shipped to the same address at a later date. Copies of the textbook that were requested in languages other than the language of the congregation will be sent to the circuit overseer for distribution.

    The coordinator of the body of elders should immediately give each elder a copy of the 'Shepherding' textbook. However, the lapel cards should be kept in a safe place until a week before the school. Then he should give the appropriate card to each elder and ministerial servant. This may prevent cards from being lost. The lapel card should be worn when entering the school location and at all times during the school. We will leave it to each elder to decide what he will do with his 1991 Kingdom Ministry School textbook. If he decides to keep the book, he must make sure it is kept in a secure place so that others do not have access to it. Otherwise, the book should be completely destroyed.

    We would like to emphasise the importance of keeping these new textbooks secured and confidential, both before and after they are distributed. The textbooks should not be left on tops or desks or in other places where they are easily accessible by family members or other individuals. The information is designed for use by the elders only, and other individuals should not have any opportunity to read the information.

    If an elder has moved away, you may have an extra textbook or lapel card, or for some other reason you have extra textbooks or lapel cards, the coordinator of the body of elders should hand deliver them to the circuit overseer. He should not send textbooks or lapel cards through the mail. If your circuit overseer is a considerable distance away, the coordinator of the body of elders may give him these items the next time he sees the circuit overseer. Likewise, if for some reason you do not receive enough textbooks or lapel cards, the coordinator of the body of elders should contact the circuit overseer for assistance.

    We are providing the text books to elders in advance so that you will be able to read the book through before attending the school. You will want to concentrate particularly on chapters 1,2,4-7,9 and 11, since they will be considered specifically at the school. In addition to your 'shepherding' textbook, please remember to bring your Bible, Organized to do Jehovah's Will, Benefit from Theocratic Ministry School Education and some note paper......

    How can any elder read this crap and not immediately ask: Why? What is the point of these instructions?

    (note: it's a rhetorical question; I know the answer: mind control)

    Lol, magwitch!

    They still remind us to bring food to the circuit assembly and district convention. If they didn't tell us, we might starve!

      Close

      Confirm ...
